Man builds 1 million-penny pyramid in attempt to break world record


PHOENIX- An Arizona man is hoping to cash in on his penchant for stacking coins. 

Cory Nielsen, 55, of Phoenix, has spent three years meticulously stacking more than 1 million coins without using any glue, tacks or welds -- they are simply balanced together, the New York Post reported.

Nielsen is hoping to get the 1,030,315-million penny pyramid added to the Guinness World Records book. His request is under review, Rachel Gluck, spokeswoman for Guinness World Records, told the Post

He has created more than 40 videos on his aptly named “Penny Building Fool” channel as the project has progressed. A six-minute time-lapse video compresses the 1.8 years it actually took Nielsen to construct it.
